Like the poltergeists, I’m baaack. I’m back to my usual health, and while I’m still pretty horribly snowed under, I think that enough of the worst of it is over that I can generally commit to my “Updates Mondays” schedule again. This has been a *long* hiatus (over 6 motnths), and I’m very glad to be back among the lang of the living. I’ve missed this blog and the ADF community generally.
Although I plan to get back to the ADF BC Tuning series soon, I want to use this post to announce two things: The first piece of software I’m releasing on this site and my public (that is, not just as an audience member) at ODTUG Kaleidoscope, which will be next week in Monterey, CA.
First, the software. This is actually related to one of the talks I’ll be giving at ODTUG, and tangentially related to another. But even if you aren’t going to the conference, I hope you’ll find it useful. It’s an extension of the ADF BC framework that allows you to create the following 100% declaratively:
- Entity object definitions (including support for optimistic or pessimistic locking and Refresh After… settings) that use Package APIs instead of DML
- View object definitions (whether entity-based or not, and including support for query parameters) that use Package APIs instead of SELECT statements
- Associations and view link definitions involving the above
You can get the framework here.
At ODTUG, I’ll be participating in the following:
- Tuesday, 10:30-12:00, in Regency Ballroom I: I’ll be delivering the paper, “Package-Based ADF.”
- Tuesday, 2:45-3:45, in Grove: I’ll be delivering the paper, “Extreme Reusability for Oracle JDeveloper and ADF.”
- Tuesday, 5:15-1:15, in Windjammer II, III & IV: I’ll be participating in the Sundown Session- Middleware and SOA.
- Wednesday, 1:30-5:15, in Cyprus III: I’ll be on a panel, “A Guide to Fusion Web Development with JDeveloper 11g,” with Peter Koletzke and Duncan Mills.
Hope to see you there!
